• Monitoring at the speed of DevOps


    The meetup is organised by ProdOps.io, a team of software operations architects who consult on infrastructure automation and workflow improvement. Soluto are kindly hosting us. Content and refreshments provided by ESL. In recent years companies are using modern techniques (Agile, DevOps, CI/CD) and technologies (Cloud, Containers, Kubernetes) to create new business services as fast as possible. These are critical applications for their business, so they must deliver them with high quality. Application Performance Management (APM) has become a key element to achieving quality, performance and availability of Modern business-critical applications. Agenda: 18:00 - Gathering, Pizza, Mingling 18:30 - 19:15 - Monitoring at the speed of DevOps - Golan Shem-Tov @Instana 19:15 - 20:00 - How to control multi zone cloud environment with 0 overhead - Gal Levinsky @Mobitech **Talk1: We live in a world where everything is moving fast and the heat is on! Companies are building applications fast and deploy new functionality or fixes multiple times a day. Using modern techniques and technologies has disrupted Application Performance Management and caused loss of visibility into applications, their performance and availability. Legacy APM was not built for a dynamic world where services grow and shrink, move around, short lived and constantly changing. We will discuss challenges and solutions to monitoring in the speed of devops. **Talk 2: Features overview and a customer success story about the usage of Instana APM in a AWS cloud based environment with Billions server calls a day with the following technology stack: Java reactive application servers, nginx web servers, MongoDB, ElasticSearch, MySQL, Spring. ##About the speakers:## **Golan Shem-Tov is a Senior Solutions Architect for Instana , and an APM enthusiast since 2003.

  • November meetup at Imperva

    Imperva office, 27th floor

    The meetup is organised by ProdOps.io, a team of software operations architects who consult on infrastructure automation and workflow improvement. Imperva are kindly hosting us at their new event space. 17:45 - 18:15 - Mingling, Pizza and Beer 18:15 - 18:50 - The Cloud Trifecta - Why the Unification Revolution will be DevOps-Lead 18:55 - 19:30 - Docker based development pipeline for micro-services The Cloud Trifecta - Why the Unification Revolution will be DevOps-Lead Presenter: Gadi Naor, CTO and Co-founder, Alcide Fact is, cloud computing provides DevOps with a scalable way to provision and manage applications. Yet, DevOps struggle with daily tasks and changes in these ever-changing environments, and in specific With the process of how applications are developed and how infrastructure is built. This increasingly added complexity is forcing DevOps teams to rethink how to best optimize their environments. Applications are now made up of a combination of owned code and third-party services while their infrastructure is composed through a combination of workloads - from bare metal and servers, to VMs and containers - which they don't fully control. With applications and their supporting environments becoming increasingly distributed and meshed, how will DevOps effectively keep up with the pace of rapid transformation in a unified, secure and scalable way? In this session, Alcide will discuss why the unified DevOps experience needs to be one of the first considerations for both cloud-native companies and companies embracing the cloud, and elaborate on why such unified experience is the right way to ensure the full app stack is secured during the entire application life cycle to avoid security blind spots or potential exploitation. 19:00 - 19:45 - Docker based development pipeline for micro-services Presenter: Ori Nakar, Technical Leader at Imperva A development pipeline is an automated process used to deliver changes from development to production environments. It enables a constant flow of changes. A typical pipeline includes the following 3 main stages: • Build - build your source code and pack it as artifacts • Test - test your change and the rest of the system • Deploy - make the changes available for use A development pipeline is a critical time saver: • Avoid mistakes and time waste, by using automation • Supply a quick feedback for any change in the software (good or bad) • Allow development in an isolated environment, so one’s mistake will not affect other’s work The constant and immediate feedback helps finding mistakes right after they happen, and minimizes production issues. It also helps your team be confident with their changes, which makes them both happier and more productive. Ori will tell you about our development pipeline, flow and services we chose. He will explain how Docker helps us in different stages of the pipeline such as making it agnostic to the choice of development technology and gives us strong testing capabilities. Join the meetup to watch a live demo and learn about Imperva's choices and highlights of the pipeline.

  • WOW your AWS - lightning talks on tools

    AWS Offices.

    The meetup is organised by ProdOps.io, a team of software operations architects who consult on infrastructure automation and workflow improvement. Kindly hosted and presented by AWS at their new meetup space in Azrieli Sarona tower, 28th floor. Agenda: 18:00–18:30 - Doors open, gathering, food. 18:30 - 19.45 - Short talks 1. Evgeny Zislis will talk about CloudFormation (20min) How to decouple stacks using exported values, how to use Systems Manager to provide different parameters for different environments to re-use the same templates and how to make templates that can conditionally create resources depending on these parameters. 2. Paul Lewis **The Evolution of Infrastructure as Code (20min)** In this talk we’ll get hands on with the recently released AWS Cloud Development Kit (CDK). We’ll talk briefly about the benefits of describing your architecture with a programming language rather than JSON/YAML, and then put the slides away and spend the majority of the talk showing you the CDK via a hands-on example. 3. Paul Maddox **Better canary deployments with K8s, Spinnaker and Istio** “I want fast, safe deployments, and I want to be able to roll back/forwards quickly in the event of a problem” said every developer ever. In this talk, we’ll dive into the world of canary deployments, why most articles and guides you read about them online are flawed, and how to implement a really good canary deployment pipeline for containers with Kubernetes, Spinnaker, Istio and Prometheus.
